Freeing the Chest and Spine with Heart and Lung Imagery
Visualizing your organs, as you are moving, has many benefits. Organs can also form joints with one another or the surrounding structures. For example, as shown in this video, the heart forms a joint with the lungs in which case the heart is the ball and the lungs are the sockets. They also can move relative to one another. After trying the exercise shown in the video, you will feel more free and open in your upper body. You will notice that your breath and shoulders will also relax.
Many of us agree that breathing is very important, not just for survival, but our overall well-being. Yet most of us don’t really know how it actually works. What is good breathing, what is the design and what can prevent its proper activation. Your breathing influences the health of a variety of aspects like posture, heart, digestion, pelvic floor, emotions, learning ability and energy levels.
In our upcoming workshops in New York we will come to understand the design, structure and movement of the diaphragm, ribs, deep abdominal muscles and how they can work together to strengthen and free up both body and mind. Through easy-to-do imagery, touch, voice and movement exercises, we will explore the mechanics and physiology of the breathing. We will explore the wave pattern of breathing up and down the spine as well as experience how we can use our breath as our positive energy thermostat.
